"Autumn in Betsie Valley, Michigan," Brilliant Landscape Painting by Merizon


An early painting by renowned Grand Rapids artist Armand Merizon, inspired by a dramatic, autumnal view of the Betsie Valley near Frankfort, Michigan not far from Traverse City this work shows the artist's characteristic melding of realistic and fantastical painting. Merizon depicts the rocks and trees of the landscape with vivid brilliance, but the sky seems to be opening up, giving a glimpse of some otherworldly place, its plane fractured into a thousand prisms. The artist was a prominent member of the West Michigan Eight, a regional group of artists that painted and exhibited in the galleries and museums of Grand Rapids and Muskegon. (Dimensions include frame).
